This is actually legit it is at the lube stop in wooster ohio. It needs an engine but hey what the hell do you expect.

Looks like a great candidate for a Lima swap.

Ya a 2.3 turbo truck would be cool. Isn't there a thread on here explaining the full conversion xr donor drive train going into a ranger? I can't find it when I search.

I don't recall seeing one here, but I do know that there are Ranger forums, which I'm sure go into it.

Must have sold. Looking at the front passenger tire, it must have been pretty deep into the ground at one time.

Or, is that just a shadow?

I also thought shadow. But if you climbed under it and felt around I'm sure you would find mud/dirt on top of frame etc. Maybe some water in diffs as well but that's to be expected. Plenty of rangers for parts available. Around here main thing is not rusted into two separate sections. Seen plenty of nice trucks for 1k or 2k with tons of life left and look good, just don't drive due to rusted out brake lines.
